Week roars with lots of great fun, entertainment

| March 5, 2020 1:00 AM

We’d be “lion” if we said there wasn’t anything to do this week. In fact, March is roaring with fun with everything from great jams, the annual gun and horn show at the Bonner County Fairgrounds to the inimitable Angels Over Sandpoint bringing us the 18th annual Follies at the Panida Theater.

So grab the phone, find a calendar and mark your favorites. You don’t want to miss a single morsel of entertainment — or what promises to be some tasty comfort food at the Tervan’s first Mac ‘n’ Cheese Throwdown to benefit the Panhandle Animal Shelter.
